Romans 5: The benefits of righteousness….

Romans 5:1-11… Paul in this opening verse of Romans chapter 5…. is saying that justification is not sterile Doctrine… but a source of present blessing in one’s life…. (we have)…. look at details not the traditions of men…. traditions of men will lead  you down the Chipmunk Trail…. and you will be reduced to looking for hollow nuts…..

Romans 5 verse 2… The Christian has confidence and should claim all of God’s purposes…. (Glory)…. and that they will be fulfilled…. we can even boast in the hope of the glory that God will manifest….

Romans 5 verses 3 through 5…. understand that suffering produces good results in the believer’s life…. some people have the misconception…. that when you become a Believer …you’re in a bed of roses… when you become a believer your eyes are open to the spiritual world around you… and it can be Dreadful… if you don’t understand what’s going on…. there are supernatural angels both good and bad…. the good ones to help you…. the bad ones to hinder you ….and they are like electricity you can’t see them… but they’re there… I have personally experienced them…..

Romans chapter 5 verses 6 through 10…. unbelievers are described as powerless …ungodly….. Sinners…. and enemies…. the word enmity is used…. and can mean either that we have enmity against God or that he considers us enemies….

Romans 5 verses 6 through 8…. paraphrasing…. the amazing thing is that God’s love is shown in the fact that Christ died for men in whom…

 there was nothing that evoked that love…..If…

You can get your heart and mind around that… it can change your life…. seeing how loving…  God really is… even though me and you…. might have a big old wart on the end of our nose…
